2:01 pm
transpired in this house in cleveland, ohio, which was today boarded up to preserve -- one of the alleged victims, amanda berry gave birth to ariel castro's baby. tests show the man accused of kidnapping her and raping her over ten years is the father of her now 6-year-old girl. castro's grown daughter is telling cnn about the times she was with him in the house unknowingly feet away from the alleged victims. >> ever since my mom lived in that house, the basement was always kept locked. i have never been up stairs in the house. i never had reason to be. i asked him if i could see my room for old time's sake. he said, o honey, there is so much junk up there. you don't want to go up there. >> more of the exclusive interview coming up on cnn. and ariel castro is on what police call suicide prevention. now locked away in a nine by
2:02 pm
nine-foot cell. as for one of his alleged victims, michelle knight she was released from the hospital. while amanda berry and gina dejesus are with their family members, michelle's family doesn't know where she is. susan, what's the latest on michelle knight's whereabouts? >> reporter: hi, don. we don't know where she is. it appears as though that's the way michelle knight might want it. her family said they were unable to find out where she is including her mother and other relatives. a source close to the investigation tells us that michelle knight is in a safe and secure place and that she's very, very comfortable there. that's how it will stay for now. >> cleveland police took michelle knight off the fbi's missing persons list a little more than a year after she disappeared. why? >> reporter: let's recap that.
2:03 pm
she went missing in 2002. and then after about 15 months, some time in 2003, she was removed from the fbi database because, according to the cleveland police department, there is a certain protocol that someone who is missing, an adult, that it must be verified with a family member, friend or someone that she remains missing. apparently they were unable to do so and that's why she was removed from the fbi's adult missing database. however, cleveland police maintain, don, that they have kept that case open all these years. in fact, in 2012, our sources tell us, tell my colleague pam brown that, in fact, her missing person status was verified. it's unclear why she wasn't put back into the fbi database at that time. don? >> susan, can you tell me more about ariel castro? he's on what police are calling a suicide prevention.
2:04 pm
how does that compare to suicide watch? what's the distinction there? >> well, suicide watch would be if you as an inmate say, "i want to kill myself." then the judge may step in, would likely step in and/or the jail and put you on suicide watch. according to jail officials, sheriff's officials they say in this case where you have a high profile inmate such as ariel castro, you are automatically put in a special area away from other potds and cells where inmates are and you are put on suicide prevention. so someone sits outside your kroel and keeps an eye on you 24 hours a day. this cell is set up with a steel door with a wide window so you can see in at all times. >> susan candiotti, thank you very much for that. friends and family of ariel castro are trying to come to grips with the horrors of the
2:05 pm
last decade. his own daughter horrified by what her father allegedly did. >> my husband and i are in complete disbelief that the friendly, caring, doting man i knew as my daddy was, in fact, the most evil, vile, demonic criminal that i have met or heard of to rape, starve, beat innocent human beings? i have no sympathy for the man. i have no sympathy. he was just another person who has lied, deceived and manipulated people. i could never forgive him. he's nothing but a memory anymore. he can never be daddy again. >> in 20 minutes more of this interview including why his daughter says she wishes she could erase him from her mind. charles ramsey doesn't want the title "hero" but a lot of people say he is. he's the man who helped break down the door in the cleveland
2:06 pm
house. after he heard amanda ber rice screams he joined rock newman, the radio host and former boxing promoter in washington, d.c. cnn was invited to join them in studio. take a listen. >> didn't call 911 and say, forget it. just take me to the police station. remember, we have cars on the street. we didn't have to call nobody. she was free. all she had to do was get in somebody's car, take this girl to the police. she stuck around for the police to get there to tell them, go in there and get the people. >> amanda berry is a celebrity also. >> that's the damn hero, not me. i just played my position. >> right. [ applause ] >> oh, my god, oh, my god. what a story. >> when gina dejesus came out of the house and that michelle girl came out of the house, that -- man, listen. it was like -- heaven for a
2:07 pm
split second opened up and then god said, enough. this has gone on long enough. you weren't supposed to grab no girls. see, this was a test, fool. and you failed it with flying colors. >> how do you describe how you're feeling? >> happy. was the first one. look there. she's alive. look at that one. she's alive. but then that goes out of the way. because, see, i'm not -- what do you want to call? timid. i'm a predator. so we switched from -- boy, that was a good thing to if i get my hands on ariel before the police -- >> you just had some instinct that you wanted to take care of serious business yourself. >> you wouldn't be interviewing
2:08 pm
me. at least not live to live where i can touch you. i would be in the penitentiary, bro. i would be the first human on earth able to take a person's head off their body and kick it down the street like a soccer ball. >> wow. man, oh, man. what a story. other news to report. we want to head to washington and the controversy around the government talking points used to describe last year's attack on the u.s. compound in benghazi, libya. sources say an e-mail discussion about the much debated talking points seemed to suggest a white house and state department were more involved in removing an assessment that said a group with ties to al qaeda was involved in the attack. athena jones from the white house. is the bottom line here a question? did government officials change their account of the attack for political reasons? >> reporter: hi, don. that's certainly what republican
2:09 pm
critics are alleging. we know there were multiple discussions going on in coming up with these talking points between the white house, the state department, the fbi, cia and justice department officials. republican critics allege that the administration knew early on that this attack in benghazi was the result of a planned terror operation. even as they were giving u.n. ambassador susan rice talking points to go on the sunday talk shows and blame this attack on violence that arose out of demonstrations over a video that had insulted islam. here you have president obama who was just a few weeks away from another election. he had been touting the finding and killing of osama bin laden. the administration had talked about al qaeda having been decimated and being on the run. here you have this attack in benghazi. on september 11 appeared to have extremist causes. republicans say officials removed one reference to a group with a link to al qaeda being
2:10 pm
involved. also removing how the cia had given multiple warnings about the potential for a terrorist attack there in that area in benghazi, libya. so republicans say they removed these lines for political cover. the administration says those lines were removed from talking points because it was an ongoing investigation. they wanted to state only what they knew to be true, don. >> some are saying the controversy is an attempt to sabotage hillary clinton's chance of a 2016 presidential run. what do you know about that? >> reporter: well, certainly a lot of interest has to do with the fact that former secretary of state hillary clinton was then at the helm. she hasn't said she's running for president in 2016. but a lot of people think she wants to. just a month after the benghazi attack she gave an interview saying she took responsibility for diplomatic security or for the lack of it in this case. she said in congressional
2:11 pm
hearings in january just a few months ago. but that's not enough for republican critics like kentucky senator rand paul who, unlike a lot of people said a few months ago he's not going to deny he's interested in possibly running for president. he was speaking last night at a dinner of the iowa gop. this is an annual dinner. he talked about the security issue. let's listen to that. >> they are asking for security. they are pleading for security. they got nothing. it was inexcusable. it was a dereliction of duty and should preclude her from holding office. >> there you heard from senator rand paul. that's one example of the kind of criticism we expect former secretary clinton to continue to come under in the coming weeks and months. don? >> appreciate that. boston's top cop makes candid comments about how the intelligence community works next. also ahead, something you never want to see or hear. a possible fire in the white

2:13 pm
2:14 pm
the president honored the top cops in the nation today. he used a white house event to press congress for tougher gun laws singling out those who responded to the boston bombings and took part in the search for the tsarnaev brothers calling their bravery difficult. >> they are out there. hundreds of thousands patrolling our streets every single day.
2:15 pm
we know that when we need you most, you will be ready to dash into danger to protect our lives, even if it means putting your lives on the line. that's what these folks are all about. that's what the men standing -- men and women standing behind me have proven. >> in the meantime, boston's top cop says we've got to improve communication among federal, state and local law enforcement. hearings before congress on the boston bombings dealt with fact it is fbi knew and information available to local cops. one congressman said the bombers may have succeeded because the system failed. boston's police commissioner said information sharing guidelines after 9/11 were not always used. >> if we knew everything that we know now, absent the blast -- without the blast being involved in it, but if we knew all the things that have come since then we would have taken a hard look
2:16 pm
at these individuals. at this point in time, i can't say that when we knew things we would have done anything differently. >> also from boston today, we have learned that russia kept to itself some information about bombing suspect tamerlan tsarnaev. i'm talking about information that the fbi would certainly have wanted to know like details about tsarnaev's extremism and that he was becoming more radicalized than russia led on. i want to go to cnn's paula newton with me from boston. hypothetically, if the fbi knew this information before the bombings, could things have gone differently one month ago? >> reporter: you know, it's hard to say. you heard edward davis there saying it's hard to know. you had to think if you had clear information and what some people have reported is that he actually communicated with his mother the desire to join extremists that he would not have made it into russia in 2012. if he had been in russia he would have been questioned or at
2:17 pm
least had some kind of surveillance when he returned from russia in 2012. a lot of what-ifs here. as you can see from the testimony you were talking about, it's clear. the dots weren't connected. there are a lot of things that could have been more streamlined. lessons learned from 9/11. that's been so unnerving, so unsettling for law enforcement and intelligence officials dealing with this. right now on the ground in russia we have a large fbi team investigating this, uncovering much more i'm sure as we speak. don? >> paula, we have solid confirmation about where tamerlan tsarnaev's body is buried. do we really need to know where it is? is it the public's right to know where he's buried? n it is a matter of public record. we obtained the death certificate. it says there where he's buried. people in cambridge didn't want him buried there. people in massachusetts are relieved and gratified that he's
2:18 pm
not buried in this state. what happened is that an interfaith group, christians, hindus, people of faith got together and said, we need to bury this person. it is not right. for that reason they got together, offered this plot. officials said this caught us off guard. at the same time, don, i can tell you a lot of people in the city, even victims and families telling us they had mixed feelings saying, look, it's time for him to be laid to rest. we want to stop talking about him and get on with the recovery of the city and victims. >> absolutely. thank you, paula. we appreciate your reporting. this week three women escaped after allegedly being held prisoner for a decade in an ohio home. a note written by the captor blames them for being tossed into the torture chamber. that's next. from capital one,miles card bjorn earns unlimited rewards for his small business. take these bags to room 12 please.

years ago my daughter and i were homeless. my main priority was to get high. then i got pregnant again. i was, like, what am i doing? i need to change. >> i have never met a woman who wanted to hurt her unborn baby. but i have met a lot of women who did not know how to do the right thing. the common denominator is poverty. poverty is an accident of birth. pregnancy is a wonderful window

2:26 pm
most of us -- most people can't wrap our heads around, you know, how someone could keep them prisoners in his own house for a decade. how does that happen in our society? >> okay. remember, don. i explained the why. i'm not forgiving him but there have been marauding males in the lower classes in the history of our species who have a hard time getting along. let me say we also have more isolation and more disassociation than ever. the thing that protected the vulnerable, the children, the elderly, the from jill young girls was that we rome e roamed species of 30, 40 people. we weren't isolated. i don't think 50 years ago he could have pulled it off. there would have been a sister, mother, brother, cousin checking in more on him or protecting those young girls. >> we are in our own little world so much now on our iphones and social media instead of
2:27 pm
socializi socializing. >> yeah. >> getting to know our neighbors. as we witnessed the rise of women, more freedom, power, better jobs. they are seeking higher caliber men. you say that may be a factor with a guy like this. >> well, it's important when we are thinking in large scale sociological terms when women rise in power they come up with the george clooney effect. they want a more wealthy, equally wealthy, smarter, slightly older mate to marry. this leaves a pool of lower status men in the lower classes who can't have access to mates. think about this guy. he had a restraining order against him from his wife. there was his access there. really, don, how would he have achieved on the dating scene on today's market. so he restrained three women. he referred to one of them at least at his girlfriend to his daughter. in his mind, he was just
2:28 pm
capturing what he felt was his because he wasn't having access to it. >> you know, a moment ago we talked about that note reportedly written by ariel castro in 2004. he blamed the girls for their own captivity saying it was their mistake for getting in a stranger's car. from what i understand of your story, anyone could make a mistake like that. >> anyone can make a mistake like that, don. i'm about to tell you a story i have never told anybody, even my parents. your producer made me. he said, if you can show that a smart woman can make this mistake when she was young you can understand how it can happen. i was 15 years old, walking down a street in toronto, canada. yonge street. i had my modeling portfolio with me. a guy pulled up and had a tone of voice so familiar like he knew me. he said, hey, want a lift to your dad's office? i swear to god. i thought, maybe he's a friend of my parents i didn't recognize. i get in the car.
2:29 pm
we start to drive away. i look and immediately the door locks go down. this is the '80s. they were cut off, shaved off. then he put on black gloves and said, so what do you like to do for fun? i said, nothing. he said, do you know what i like to do as he was putting on the gloves, i like to take on young things like you. i swear he said this. i'm dying inside thinking how can i get out, cause attention. luckily within ten minutes -- i will say it's because i was praying. think whatever you want. at&ties at&ties his car broke down. he said, stay in the car! i jumped out. i never told my parents because i was so ashamed i made this quick split second decision. >> wow. those prayers worked. something did. >> they did. >> i know. oh, my goodness. thank you for sharing that story. i appreciate that. cnn sat down for an exclusive interview with the daughter of the man accused of keeping those women prisoners for a decade in
